Does it exist an stripped down os like chromeos, with only firefox and thunderbird and a few basic apps that are known to be very secure? would be cool of mozilla apps which uses plugins would use seccomp to sandbox them.
if*
auscompgeek
Sander^home: why not just make your browser the OS? :P
Sander^home
auscompgeek: chrome under Linux use different processes for each tab. and use seccomp to sandbox them.
Would love to see that happen in firefox too :-)
auscompgeek
I was being facetious
Sander^home
Hehe :-)
tanath
Sander^home, you're on linux then?
you can sandbox firefox with firejail on linux. it uses seccomp
Sander^home
tanath: can I sandbox each tab in ff?
tanath
well no, it'd sandbox the whole app and any child processes
but if you want separate sanboxes you could run new instance & profile of firefox to sandbox separately
development of firefox is heading in that direction though
Sander^home
tanath: good to hear:-D

hi guys ... how can i fox this "(process:4609): GLib-CRITICAL **: g_slice_set_config: assertion 'sys_page_size == 0' failed "
Cork
tumbler: no need to fix it
it is common to get that in the console (and it isn't fatal)
it is just gtk printing a warning
tumbler
Cork, ok but ... FF crashed just started
Cork
tumbler: that most likely is something else
are you using a mozilla build or firefox from the repo?
tumbler
that above happened to a friend of mine
Cork
it happens to everyone
b0at
fwiw, i get that == 0 assertion all the time on linux. it's just noise.
Cork
that error means nothing
b0at
not association with crashes at all.
tumbler
i think he uses Ubuntu so FF was installed from their repos
Cork
i've had it on all linux installs for the last 5+ years
tumbler: first of he could try reinstalling the package
if that doesn't help download a mozilla build from mozilla.com
if that doesn't crash report it to canonical
if it does happen check about:crashes
(canonical builds doesn't have about:crashes)
tumbler
Cork, take a look here http://pastebin.com/FFNXWZ2J
Cork
tumbler: doesn't help anything
auscompgeek
tumbler: that tells us approximately zero information
Cork
for me to help you i would need a stack trace, and you need a mozilla build for that
tumbler
what is mozilla build
Cork
a firefox compiled by mozilla
tumbler
ok
         

Cork
do differ to the one in the repo that is compiled by canonical
tumbler
i know that but i dont understand why only him ... everyone else dont have that issue whit it
Cork
only him? :D
i help ubuntu users with crashing canonical builds several times a week
tumbler
maybe only to him is clearer
Cork
so he isn't alone :)
tumbler
i use arch and manjaro so i wouldn't know eheheh
Cork
tumbler: one of the big problems with canonical builds is that they aren't running the tests on there compilations
so they are releasing untested builds
and ya.. they aren't even building them similarly to how mozilla do, so mozillas testing doesn't fully cover them
tumbler: well most distros compile firefox themself
tumbler
Cork, it's true but ... i am a moderator on a forum ... a lot of users use Ubuntu ... Why this issue is verified for a few people?
(sorry for my English) ... i'm Italian
b0at
maybe ubuntu broke something.
Cork
ubuntu is a distro, it is canonical that breaks things :)
but ya, they do that all the time
nothing new there
b0at
well, i mean the confluence of software which makes up ubuntu, but yes, the packagers themselves could have done it.
tumbler
Cork, ok but why just one of them has any problem?
Cork
tumbler: like i said it isn't just one of them...
and each installation differ
tumbler
Cork, on my forum it is
Cork
so you get different behaviors
well so among your forum users only one had the same criteria fulfilled
tumbler
maybe because there are several packages on distro
*on any distro
the point is clearer now ... tx
Cork
tumbler: but ya, to clearify
i've very rarely had problems with mozillas builds cause they are conservative in how they handle dependencies
so it tend to be more system difference tolerant
and is actually why i never use the repo version of firefox
tumbler
good

Does anyone know if Pocket is going to be removed as an addon that comes preinstalled?
satdav
objectified: I am not sure my self but I will ask for you
There was a bit of a discussion on a mailing list
objectified
satdav: Thanks. I saw that the issue on the mailinglist was still in untriaged status.
Also, Pocket has been down for quite a few hours now, which might make Firefox look bad.
satdav
objectified: I will file some bugs for you
objectified
Bugs for what you mean?
satdav
objectified: can I suggest you add this to input
objectified
satdav: you mean to 1172126?
satdav
objectified: https://input.mozilla.org/feedback
Cork
objectified: as far as i know there is no plans for removing it
frankivo
can't seem to add a search keyword
would that be a bug or me doing something wrong?
hmm, I can assign a new one
but i can't find where the one i want is being used
Cork
frankivo: are you talking about bookmark keyword?
frankivo
i think so
Cork: yes
Cork
i don't think there is a way to search for keywords
frankivo
i got it working again
but just not with the keyword I want
Cork
you have to go into all bookmarks and flip through them as far as i know
frankivo
that doesnt seem very user friendly
Cork
well keywords isn't really a pushed feature
